601 La Bomba
Warhead II Limited Edition Box-Pressed · 5.5 × 56 LABWH
A different take on the 601 La Bomba's recipe, the limited-edition, semi-box-pressed 601 La Bomba Warhead II is a 5.5 x 56 premium cigar handmade at La Zona factory in Nicaragua. Created by Erik Espinosa, a tobacco-industry veteran who has worked with Drew Estate, Alec Bradley, and Gurkha, the 601 La Bomba Warhead II is finished with a dark and lush top-quality Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper (as opposed to the rest of the line's Habano-seed EMS) and offers even more of the serious strength for which the 601 La Bomba cigar line is known.
Packed in only 2,000 boxes of 10 cigars, the 601 La Bomba Warhead II is definitely a cigar for the seasoned smoker, and best saved for after a big, hearty meal. However, the 601 La Bomba Warhead II premium handmade cigar is not without sweet and savory flavor nuances: it displays an extremely bold yet very balanced blend with blasts of peppery spice and hearty hints of cocoa, making it a popular choice for brave full-bodied-cigar fans shopping online for premium cigars that are both potent and palate-pleasing.

Smoke if ya got 'em--on a full stomach in the PM!

This cigar appears a little rustic, with its dark broadleaf wrapper, semi-box press and the fuse hanging off the cap. The bomb band is on the foot. For some ill advised reason I smoked this cigar in the late morning after a very light breakfast. This is a big cigar people, full bodied, with a semi truck load of flavors. It's the Enola Gay of the cigar world. It starts off with mocha/coffee flavors, earthy notes and then blows your face off with complex spices that arrive shortly after detonation. The cigar is firm but not too tight, with an even slow burn that doesn't require a relight unless you took an extended break for defibrillation. The draw was perfect thoughout, with abundant, dense smoke. At some point with all that flavor, the spiciness increased with some red pepper, but then some creaminess at the halfway mark or so. Consistent burn and construction in what is probably the most full bodied cigar I've smoked. Not for Macanudo beginners, this is for fans of the big smokes. Wonderfully explosive. Now for a tastebud transplant.

Worth the money

I knew this would be a good cigar when I sampled it pre-light. It had that wonderful silky oily texture that only fine cigars have. The early Oliva serie V used to have that... Anyway, a great smoke with lots of kick- probably don't want to smoke on an empty stomach.
